raised of £250 target by 6 supporters

    Weʼve raised £135 to help get our historical fencing club off the ground.

    Much Wenlock, UK
    Funded on Sunday, 17th February 2019

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Over the past year or so I've been studying medieval martial arts, and we've set up a club called Wenlock Edged. So far we've been training in gardens, but WINTER IS COMING. Garden training isn't that practical now.

    We're raising funds to get insurance and affiliate with the governing body of the sport - the HEMA Alliance. Maybe even get some equipment. That'll make things more official and allow us to move the club to a regular session at Much Wenlock Leisure Centre. We have others interested too, so this will be a great way for the club to grow.

    Anything you can give would be greatly appreciated!

      With your help the club is up and running! Insurance and venue is sorted, and we will be using some of the money donated to buy some fencing masks in the near future. Thanks again!

      Nearly halfway there! At this rate we should be ready to get everything up and running properly in the new year, or maybe before. Thank you to everyone who's donated so far

    I'm a digital marketer and writer from Shropshire. I like history and swords, so what better than a 14th century martial art? We're reconstructing techniques from a manuscript by Italian master Fiore dei Liberi.
